Digital History, Open Access and Academic Blogging at the EUI on November 9, 2016

November 7, 2016

The Open Access week at the EUI is not quite over yet.

After the round-table on Open Access in Social Sciences on October 27, the Library, together with the History and Civilisation Department’s Digital History Seminar and OpenEdition Italia holds another event next Wednesday 9 November about Open Access in the humanities and social sciences, which offers three different sessions.

In the morning, Emiliano Degl’Innocenti, researcher at the CNR in Italy, will present the Horizon2020 digital history project ICARUS for accessing primary sources in Open Access, in which the EUI Library is a partner.
During the second-half of the morning, Pierre Mounier, adjunct director of the international development at the Centre pour l’édition électronique ouverte (CLEO), will present some European Projects in Open Access dealing with Humanities e-books.
In the afternoon there will be also the chance to engage directly with open access academic blogging and create one’s own Wordpress blog on the SSH international and multi-lingual platform Hypotheses.org (see more information below).
